Given `f(x)=sin(x-60^circ)-5` , we have the parent function as `f(x)=sinx` .

There are two transformations:

(1) Subtracting 60 produces a horizontal translation of 60 to the right (right shift).

(2) Subtracting 5 from the function lowers the midline 5 units.


(a) The amplitude remains 1.

(b) The maximum is 1-5=-4.

(c) The minimum is -1-5=-6.

(d) The range is [-6,-4]
